On Monday, the New York Times published an article praising Richmond’s food scene, declaring it to have the best Asian food in North America. On the list of top dining destinations was Richmond’s Night Market and, according to Twitter, Seth Rogen agrees.
The Vancouver-born actor shared the Times article on Wednesday, saying “I love the Richmond night market and have been going there for years. It’s my favorite food to eat.”

As could be expected, Rogen’s tweet ushered in a flurry of responses including some from Tourism Richmond, the NY Times, Destination BC and fellow night market enthusiasts.
There are so many amazing things to try every year!
